  1. Hi there. I am a newbie here. I found this forum to be very helpful. Reading through this tread... http://www.pomsinoz.com/forum/migration-issues/78714-176-visa-obligations-unemployment.html I was able to understand that not being able to fulfill the obligation to live in the sponsoring state for 2 years does not have any legal implications. Here is my dilemma... My family and I have been an Australian PR since Nov 2009. However, I have been working in the Middle East and have not relocated to Australia yet. My visa category is Visa 176 with South Australia State Sponsorship. I thought that it'll be a better idea to secure a job offer prior our arrival. But when we learned that my wife is pregnant for our 2nd child, we had to plan much faster because we want to be there months before she gives birth. After months of searching for a job, finally, I was able to get 2 job offers. One is in Adelaide and one is in Melbourne. The job offer in Adelaide I would say is attractive and acceptable. On the other hand, the offer in Melbourne offers a better salary package that also comes with a relocation package. The company in Melbourne is also a global organization so this is something that is difficult to say NO to. I am now considering choosing the job offer in Melbourne over Adelaide. Aside from the better job offer, we've got friends in Melbourne who has offered their assistance to look after my first child by the time my wife gives birth. Their assistance would be very helpful because we've got no relatives in Australia. Here are my questions. 1. I know that I am not legally required to live in Adelaide. My migration agent said that I still have a choice and since I don't intend to live there anyway, I might as well not contact the South Australia government. What can you say about this approach? What implication will this approach make in the near future? 2. Will I encounter any issues with Victoria when we apply for Centrelink, Medicare etc..? 3. Will this be an issue if we apply for citizenship? 4. Will this be an issue if we apply for visas for our relatives if they would have to come visit us for short period of time? I am also considering consulting another migration agent regarding this matter but I thought that maybe some of you guys here can provide some answers too. TIA
  2. Im 5 months in and I need to leave the job. Im not sleeping and am very stressed due to the bullying nature of my boss. What is ahead of me if I give my notice? Should I tell DIAC? Someone advise me please :cry:
  3. Persons without visa's and the high horse brigade please comment constructively, i can't be doing with the old moral obligation flannel;your taking a visa from some one that wanted that state blah blah blah! Its not my intention to offend anyone I'm just seeking fact not fiction! Does anyone know anyone that has actually flown to their sponsored state, visited the zoo and flown where ever you fancied and there not been any come back? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Hi forum I got WA SS recently and one of the requirements listed with the 2 year living in the state requirement is that I must transfer in "around $30 000". I can do this, but I'd like to know how strict they are on it? What if I prefer to leave funds in my home country and rather try make it on my salary once I'm there? I'd like to transfer the funds in once I am ready to put a down payment on a house. Any ideas? Do they demand proof at any time after landing? Thanks for the advice

    Hi all I have been granted SC176 (SA Sponsored) at May,2011. Since then i am trying to search job at Adelaide from oversea. No luck not that much opening at my profession. Most of the opening at Sydney or Melbourne. After 2 months, i decided to drop my cv for other state and has managed to give two phone interview with two employer at (Melbourne,Perth). And got a real good offer from Melbourne Employer. Now i am planning to move Melbourne first, after 6 month i will try to search job at SA, if will get move there to fulfill my moral obligation. My question is , should i inform SA Immigration office about my circumstances and decision now? Or when i will move there just let them know, may be after 6 months? If i keep silent all the time staying at AUS, (may be i will never get any job offer from SA), what will be the circumstance? I am in a bit mental pressure head says go to melbourne get the job started secured life. Or go to Adeliade... doing nothing, be in more pressure....:confused::confused: Help, advise will be very much appreciable. Thanks Scorion

    176 State Sponsored Obligation

    I have read the info posted by Melbournegirlinny. But I have found the following info in other website: (1) You do not make any effort to live by your promises, the state government can tell DIAC and (in theory at least), DIAC could attempt to cancel your visa for providing fraudulent information. (2) DIAC could, if they wished, change the laws to make it easier to cancel these visas in the most flagrant cases of abuse. (3)Some said it will affect the citizenship application sine do not meet the moral requirement. Is this right? Is there any successful cases?
